Almost Done

We can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel. Things are going extremely well here in terms of counts healing. My counts have shot up recently, and evenly doubled last night. Dr. Moskowitz mentioned that it looks like I could be out of here by Thursday. Three weeks! Ha! I knew we could do it, getting out of here earlier than the average stay (3 and a half weeks).

The Irony

I am healing too quickly! Because my counts have shot up, it is causing these fevers, which are rocking my world. These fevers are making it tough to keep food down, are making it tough to sleep at night, and making life generally uncomfortable. This is not uncommon, though, with patients who have rapidly increasing counts, and is treated with steroids.

The Article and the Benefit

Webmaster Patrick is going to put up the article from my hometown newspaper “The Vindicator” about this website, my story, and the benefit banquet that some of my dear friends are holding for me on January 20th in Youngstown, Ohio. You can check it out –CLICK HERE. Needless to say the website traffic and my e-mails have significantly gone up. Give me a few days to respond to any e-mail. I appreciate all of them, especially now.

Words of Encouragement

I thank you all for your words of encouragement. I have my good days. I have my bad days. It’s great to be able to check my e-mails and see SO many people supporting me. It’s overwhelming to hear from everyone I have ever known out there praying and thinking good thoughts for me. When this all blew up in September, I never thought it would get this big. It just amazes me to see how so many people can come together to support one person. Thank you.

“Not only so but we also rejoice in our sufferings because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character, character, hopeā€¦”

God doesn’t make any mistakes. And certainly this is all here for some amazing good, in my life and hopefully in yours too.
